Be Yourself, but Carefully

Be Yourself, but Carefully | Leadership | Scoop.it

“Authenticity” is the new buzzword among leaders today. We’re told to bring our full selves to the office, to engage in frank conversations, and to tell personal stories as a way of gaining our colleagues’ trust and improving group performance. The rise in collaborative workplaces and dynamic teams over recent years has only heightened the demand for “instant intimacy,” and managers are supposed to set an example.

 

But the honest sharing of thoughts, feelings, and experiences at work is a double-edged sword: Despite its potential benefits, self-disclosure can backfire if it’s hastily conceived, poorly timed, or inconsistent with cultural or organizational norms—hurting your reputation, alienating employees, fostering distrust, and hindering teamwork. Getting it right takes a deft touch, for leaders at any stage of their careers.

Positive Teams Are More Productive

Positive Teams Are More Productive | Leadership | Scoop.it
All managers would like their teams to be more productive. Yet most companies are using the same old methods: strategic plans, goal-setting, streamlining operations, reducing inefficiency. Others are offering employee perks, such as on-site food, daycare, or gyms. Others are offering bigger bonuses or flexible schedules.

Kim Cameron and his colleagues at the University of Michigan, however, have discovered a way to improve performance that has nothing to do with dishing out benefits or deploying new processes. In a research article published in the Journal of Applied Behavioral Science Cameron and his coauthors found that a workplace characterized by positive and virtuous practices excels in a number of domains.

Ashley Borich's curator insight, March 18, 12:08 AM

As a leader in an organisation, you should be able to creatively influence people to perform assigned tasks willingly, effectively and efficiently. As an occupational health and safety professional it is essential to be able to effectively plan and control people and processes to create a safe, positive and professional working environment. In order to successfully implement safe working practices to employees, you must provide them with purpose, reasoning and trust.

 

This article is meaningful to my five year journey, as effective management is crucial to my goal of becoming a human resources manager after completion of my degree. Currently, I am in my fourth year and final term of finishing a dual degree of business and professional communication, majoring in human resources. After graduation I hope to pursue a career as a HR manager, therefore it goes without saying that leadership plays an integral part of effective management.

The Single Best Way To Develop Leadership Skills

The Single Best Way To Develop Leadership Skills | Leadership | Scoop.it

You might learn a great deal in school, but it’s doubtful that you’ll actually develop as a leader by reading a book or taking a course. The military is right about experiential development: People grow and become leaders by making a commitment to a cause, and having personal responsibility and accountability.  

 

For those of us in civilian life, there are also ways for us to develop as leaders through experience: through volunteer service. There are myriad nonprofit missions from which to choose, roles and positions in which to engage that are meaningful and productive, and paths for personal and professional advancement.
